Close to perfection

Ada Williamson lived her whole life in the shadow of her charismatic, capricious sister. But when the beautiful Melinda decides to jilt her mail-order groom on the way to meet him in Seattle, Washington Territory, Ada’s conscience demands that she continue the journey and tell Thomas Rankin the truth. After all, she wrote most of the letters the couple exchanged, and she’s already halfway in love with the man herself. Yet somehow, one look at Thomas and the future he offers, and the truth never comes out. Suddenly, Ada finds herself not only out of the shadows, but living the life meant for her sister.

After making his fortune on the goldfields, Thomas “Scout” Rankin found he could buy almost anything he wanted, including the perfect mail-order bride in a territory where women are still few and far between. But past betrayals have left him wary, so he immediately notices that the woman who claims to be his mail-order bride doesn’t quite act the part. Still, someone wrote those letters that spoke to his heart. If getting to know Ada better will reveal the truth, he’s willing to try, even if he must protect his own secrets along the way.

But someone knows both their secrets and aims to use them to advantage. Can Thomas and Ada discover the truth, about their enemy, about their pasts, and about the love they both yearn to share?

If you like warm, witty historical romances, then you’ll love this frontier historical romance by an award-winning author that continues her popular Frontier Bachelors series.

Hott Review of The Perfect Mail-Order Bride:

I have to admit, I was very worried that The Perfect Mail-Order Bride would not mean the expectation that I had for it. Scout was a big part of the rest of the previous series (Frontier Bachelors) and him finally finding a bride was very important to many of us but I was afraid that after loving all of the previous books and waiting so long for this one that I would be disappointed because of my great expectations. I needn’t have worried. This book was even better than the rest!

It was great that even though this is the last in a huge series I had no problem jumping in and reading, and neither will anyone who hasn’t read any of the previous books. But it did leave a memory and a wish to revisit characters I’d loved to previously.

Scout is everything I remembered and more. He grew into the man that we hoped he would become and someone that we can fall in love with for himself.

The pastor’s sermon was hard-hitting and heart-wrenching. It’s definitely something to be remembered and to read over and over again!

I really loved Ada, but I was frequently angry with her because she found it so difficult to be honest. Though I do understand the fear and her hesitations it was still frustrating. 🤣

Overall I can say whether you have read a previous book in the series or not this book is one you will definitely want to grab and share!

Regina Scott

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing. Since her first Regency romance was published in 1998, her stories have traveled the globe, with translations in many languages including Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese. She is now the author of more than 50 works of warm, witty historical romance.

She and her husband of 30 years reside in Washington State on the way to Mt. Rainier. Regina Scott has driven four in hand, learned to fence, sailed on a tall ship, and dressed as a Regency dandy, all in the name of research, of course.
